ALL things Italian will be celebrated this Sunday at Club Italia.
The venue will come to life with traditional food, dancing and entertainment served up throughout the day.
The event will be held to celebrate patron saints of Celano in Abruzzo, Costanzo, Vittorino and Simplicio.
It will start with a morning mass and will be followed by lunch and entertainment.
Volunteers of Club Italia will join together to hand make traditional speciality dishes from the town.
Every year they spend hours preparing and cooking 200 kilograms of gnocchi [potato dumplings].
They also make a range of Italian dishes including sausages and pasta.
To add an authentic atmosphere, there will be traditional dance music played from the region.
President of Club Italia, Serge Laureti, said that a lot of time, work and love goes into preparing for the festival.
"The volunteers gather the ingredients," he said. "They start early in the morning and finish late at night to prepare for the day.
"The beauty about our club is that our volunteers are long standing and they love to come and help out on these festivals.
"We do a range of food that is traditionally Italian ... that people can identify with the particular region and city."
He said the festival was an important way of keeping the Italian culture alive among the younger generations.
"It's helps keep the Italian culture and traditional values. The day is a celebration for the city, and it's celebrated not only by the migrants, but by the second generations too.
"We invite the community to come down and enjoy the food."
The festival will be held at Club Italia, corner of Hollywood Drive and Wharf Road, Lansvale, from 10am to 5pm.
